Tile comes in an array of sizes, styles, colors, and patterns so you’re sure to find one that fits the exact look you’re going for. There are a lot of reasons to love tiles aside from this, including how strong and durable they are and how easy they are to clean and maintain.

Everyone loves the look of wood flooring, but not everyone loves its upkeep and moisture-prone nature. So how can you enjoy the best of both worlds? That’s where wood-look tile comes in. Wood-look tile has become a popular flooring option that combines the visual appeal of hardwood flooring with the durability and low maintenance of tile flooring. When it comes to wood-look tile, there are some pros and cons to consider.
Wood-look tile can replicate the look and feel of wood flooring, but it doesn’t provide the same warmth hardwood does – since it’s tile it will be cooler to the touch. Unlike hardwood, however, wood-look tile is water and moisture-resistant, so it can be installed in rooms like kitchens, bathrooms, and mudrooms where hardwood is not usually recommended. You don’t need to worry about the potential damage your kids or pets can do as much as hardwood since wood-look is more durable and low-maintenance.
Yes! Tile makes a great floor for a variety of rooms thanks to its water resistance, durability, and low maintenance, but it doesn’t just stop there.
